Washington, D.C., Feb. 16 – United States lawmakers condemned Iran on Thursday for violating its international nuclear non-proliferation obligations and announced their support for efforts to report Tehran to the United Nations Security Council.

In a resolution introduced by Florida Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and passed by a vote of 404 to four in the House of Representatives, the Congressmen condemned “in the strongest possible terms” the many breaches and failures of Tehran to comply faithfully with its nuclear non-proliferation obligations.

The lawmakers called on member states of the Security Council, in particular Russia and China, to “expeditiously consider and take action” against Iran for failing to comply with the demands of the international community.

The resolution declared that Iran had “forfeited” the right to develop any aspect of a nuclear fuel cycle, especially uranium conversion and enrichment and plutonium reprocessing, because its had breached its obligations under the Safeguards Agreement for almost 20 years.

Tehran had kept its nuclear activities secret until they were exposed by the Iranian opposition National Council of Resistance of Iran in August 2002.

The House of Representatives called on all responsible members of the international community to impose economic sanctions designed to deny Iran the ability to develop nuclear weapons.
